Hadrian’s Wall Completed!

Posted on Updated on

more blisters than a sheet of bubble wrap.

The guys from Long Eaton Round Table have done it! Two groups set out – one on Thursday with the aim of walking the 84 or so miles from coast to coast, including the wall. The larger second group headed out on Friday from Heddon on the Wall to finish at Grinsdale completing the gruelling 73 mile journey.This 3 day charity walk was one of the most demanding challenges that L.E.R.T have ever engaged in. There were many heavy legs, blistered feet &  aching  muscles at the end of it all but a great sense of achievement as well. The club would like to thank Steve Barker for organising the event and every one else who helped make it possible. A special thanks must go to Julian Scholefield & Pamela Boswell at Brackenfield School for kindly loaning us their minibus for the weekend. Without their support it would have been very difficult to complete the trial.

This challenge was undertaken to raise money for dementia charities. If you would like to sponsor us, your money will directly help  to improve the quality of life for people affected by dementia in the UK. Please visit http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/lert
